Do you know a kid who loves learning about geography and cultures? Here are some gifts to delight a little world traveler…
I think a perfect kid gift is one that includes something awesome to read and write, something creative to do, and something to inspire unstructured, imaginative play. These are great on their own, or gifted as a little collection of fun for a young world traveler!

Read: We visited Disneyland a few times when I was little, and It’s a Small World was my fave! My sister and I used to go to sleep at night listening to the Disneyland Boys Choir singing the theme song on our orange record player. Now some smart Disney marketing team has turned the whole thing into a new board book series. I generally don’t get too excited about all Disney themed books, but because of the sweet message and the great illustrations (done in the style of the original ride), I’m waving my mouse ears high for this one!
I also love this classic set, which includes books highlighting history and facts of many cities. It would be fun to collect them all!
Write: If your gift recipient is going on a real trip, this travel journal will be a hit! It’s a great place to plan the adventure and log mustn’t-forget facts and details during the journey.
Create: Your young traveler can create a world of tasty treats with this gift! Also part of the same Disney series above, Feed Our Small World is a cookbook that teaches kids how to cook 26 recipes from around the world.
Play: In the activity book, Around the World With Mouk, kids can travel the world (with a bear named Mouk) and learn all about different cultures as they spend hours pouring over detailed seek and find challenges and attaching and reattaching the reusable stickers.
Or give kids the gift of travel each month, minus the expensive tickets and security lines! This Little Passports subscription is a way for kids to learn about the world through pretend play. And who doesn’t love receiving a monthly package in the mail!
